One of the worst hotel experiences ever. There was a bathtub but no plug for it and none provided on request. Broken air conditioner, and unfriendly staff. Plastic plants. Room too small for the bed. TV too high to watch.

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret

feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small

The Holiday Inn Potts Point is the nearest hotel on Victoria Street - same street as the Kirketon, check on Google maps. The Kings Cross Station is almost next door to the Holiday Inn and about 4/5 mins walk to the Kirketon.
